supplement plan that's right for you. bill: major driver of headlines today. president obama announcing his plan for immigration reform leaving the white house shortly. that is the plan we're hearing, provides a faster pathway to citizenship. on a day after eight republican and democratic senators laid out their plan. senator marco rubio was one of them. i spoke to the republican senator out of florida just a bit earlier today. senator rubio, good morning to you, and welcome back to "america's newsroom". >> thank you. bill: the president will speak later today in las vegas. do you expect him to blow up your plan? >> well, first of all, we'll reserve judgment until the president speaks. the early reports are that the president seems like he is trying to start a bidding war. we'll not do an immigration bidding wars. we have a set of principles. i've been talking about them for a number of weeks. fortunately there is a group of senate democrats and republicans here who had similar principles. we were able to join together to announce those principles. now we'll turn those principles into a bil
by their parents. i commend him for making immigration reform a top priority. president obama will place to the nation his own ideas during a visit to las vegas tomorrow. with bipartisan support billing in both houses of congress and a president who is eager to solve this issue, there is no reason we should not pass comprehensive immigration reform immediately. it will be good for our economy and good for families. successful immigration reform cannot be piecemeal and it must include a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented individuals in our country. legislation must craft a comprehensive solution that among other things continues to secure our borders, punishes unscrupulous employers who deploy immigrants. they have to learn english, work, pay taxes, stay out of trouble and then get to the back of the line; but they do obtain legal status, which is so important. the framework proposed by the bipartisan group of eight senators meets this criteria and i hope we'll soon have a bill to send through the committee process and bring to the floor for a vote. i've long said when my rep

obama will make good on his promise to make immigration reform one of the top priorities of his second term. he'll travel to las vegas to unveil his plan to implement some of the most sweeping immigration reforms in decades. the white house won't say what his proposal includes but it will likely be similar to the measure a bipartisan group of senators announced yesterday. >> we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problem and becomes law. we recognize that in order to pass bipartisan legislation, none of us can get everything we want. >> the white house says the president's plan will be similar to the blueprint he first released in 2011. it focuses on four areas, a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants, better border security. a streamlined legal immigration system and a better way for businesses to check their employees' immigration status. >>> local civil rights leaders say now is the time tore immigration reform. they say the election is proof this country is ready for action. maryland voters for example passed the dream act which grants instate tuition to the
